MEMORY VERSE: “Great is our Lord and mighty in power.” Psalm 147:5a (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus Calms the Storm I Matthew 8:23-27
This month we’re learning, “Jesus is powerful.” No matter what happens, we can remember that Jesus is powerful and we can trust Him!
We will learn the story, “Jesus Calms the Storm” in Matthew 8:23-27. Jesus was on a boat with His disciples when a BIG storm came upon them. The disciples were scared, but Jesus knew exactly what to do. He stood up and told the storm to stop. Immediately, the storm was calm! The disciples were amazed that the wind and waves obeyed Him. No matter what happens, we can remember that Jesus is powerful and we can trust Him! Jesus is more powerful than anything we will face and He is always with us. We don’t have to worry or be afraid, because Jesus is powerful and He can do anything!
We made a Bible Story Meal Time Mat to help us remember that Jesus is powerful. Place the Bible Story Meal Time Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the placemat and review the Bible story with your toddler:
- Who do you see in the picture? (Jesus)
- Did Jesus tell the storm to rain harder or to stop? (to stop)
Say, “Jesus is so powerful, He was able to stop a BIG storm! No matter what happens, remember that Jesus is powerful and you can trust Him. Who is powerful?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus is powerful!”
